Lesely and Matthew's wedding took place at the beautiful Crathorne Hall near Yarm. I asked Lesley to tell us more about their day...
"Matt & I met on a friends 21st in Durham, in 2011. From our first date I knew he was the one, I have had butterflies ever since."
"Christmas 2014, Matthew proposed to me in the most amazing way! We’d finished opening our presents on Christmas morning sat by the tree, he said to me “Do you think that’s everything?” He passed me a large, flat box. I thought “what on earth could this be...” it was a Millie’s cookie with pink writing asking me to marry him! First thing I did was question “REALLY?”, I couldn’t believe it, so excited! I Immediately said YES after that! I was pregnant when Matt proposed to me. Millie was born in 2015, she will always have the story that she was named after a cookie!"
"We wanted our wedding to be a happy and unforgettable day. It truly was one of the best days of our lives, we had everyone around us who cared, friends and family, each other and our little girl, Millie. Unfortunately we have lost some loved ones over the years we have been together and beforehand. We wanted to try and include as much as we could so they were with us that day also."
"There was so many memorable parts to the wedding! Walking down the aisle and seeing Matthew standing there, and our first dance. At the end of the night feeling accomplished, we had the most amazing day and I’d like to think everyone had a great time!"
"Photography was massively important to us. We wanted to treasure our memories and what better way can we do it?
We chose 2tone photography as both Chrissie's and Nigel's photography skills are brilliant. What a lovely couple to work with, they listened to everything we wanted and they followed through with it on the day. The quality and thought that goes into their work is unbelievable. I recommend them to friends who are getting married all of the time."
"My piece of advice to couples getting amrried is don't get stressed. Your day will be amazing. Everyone says it but it’s completely true. Your day goes so quick, so make sure you take five minutes just both of you to take it all in."
